Re: New here My son has colon cancer

I was 39 when I was diagnosed and my family had just lost my Father to cancer just over 1 year prior. I ran, and still do, my own business with about 13 staff at that time. My view on this, is totally based on my own family, is that my Mother was struggling with her own issues, and nobody in my fami...

Re: New on the forum

Hi Claudia With all the surgery are you doing any running? I have had a few months off serious running, and my long runs are now 10km which used to be my short runs. However I have 16 weeks until a Marathon I want to in so have started training again. Did a tempo run yesterday and really enjoyed it ...

Re: What's In a Name

Mark Interesting subject and sounds like you are in a place that many of us have been in. A dark place, where all hope seems gone, and nobody, apart perhaps from the people on this forum can understand you. When I was diagnosed I went from "you have cancer", to "you have stage IV canc...

Re: Beansmama is gone.

I was very saddened to hear this. She fought a good fight, and seems like she beat it to be blindsided by complications.

Re: Reoccuring Digestive issues

Hey Joe, Just like Laura suggests it sounds possibly like adhesions or something causing a blockage. I have had 5 years of similar issues, although not quite as severe. Scans don't really show adhesions, and every time I had a scan I would simply be told I had severe fecal impaction. He could try a ...

Re: New on the forum

There you go Claudia On your feet, eating, things will start to improve from there. Amazing what a difference a week or two will make physically and mentally. Small digestible chunks and you can grind it away. I am 4 weeks after open surgery for adhesions and I can't exercise or run (I love running)...

Re: New on the forum

I always try to view the setbacks as just one more step to the end goal
Recover
Get your strength back
Undergo chemo (maybe)
Ascertain what is happening with the spot on your lung
Get a plan for that
Remain NED

This is just a blip on the road to that

Re: 5 years ago

Hi Susie

I see my Oncologist in February 2018 which will be 5 years from last resection. I expect him not to mention the cured word and to keep me on some sort of surveillance

Re: Adhesion surgery for blockages

Julie No idea where you live but riding a horse into town to get the mail sounds fairly rural. Even more rural and raw than where I grew up in NZ. I started running again on the weekend and will get into some trail runs next year. Who knows, I may even post some pictures if I can get some done. Keep...

5 years ago

Hi All I have officially reached my 5 year mark from diagnosis on 05 December and am pleased to say, that despite a negative diagnosis I am still here and doing well. Life has changed from thinking about cancer to being at work and struggling to keep work going and having to deal with day to day pre...

Re: Adhesion surgery for blockages

Hi Julie Let's say that the compacted fecal matter has been working its way out of me and I was amazed that I had that much in there. I feel so much better and lighter now so yes, there is always a positive in each cloud if you chose to look at it. Mrs Kiwi really is the one that needs the glute act...

Re: New here. Just found out I have stage 3

Been in the same place with a worse diagnosis and felt like the world was falling around my ears. I am still here, doing well and almost at the 5 year mark. There is hope and you just need to deal with each issue, one at a time. I found if I looked at the bigger picture it got too overwhelming so I ...
